    Hi I have been scratching my head on a 1999 jeep cherokee with an AC problem. The compressor acts well, weird. I check the pressure on it and the high side goes to 300 and low is at 10 and the compressor kicks off until the low side get to 50 and comes on and happens again. No cold air comes out. Trying to figure it out. Any help would be great thanks.

    I had a 2000 XJ. It started acting very similar to that. Then the bearings went. Had to of coarse replace it. If it starts to makes a noise like there's a mess of marbles in it. Relatively cheap and easy to replace.

    The compressor is working it like there is a clog in the system

    I'm not familiar with clogs in AC systems. Sorry.

    Check the orifice or pressure regulator.
